200th review: enjoyed on the deck in early fall heat.
A - Into a Duvel tulip: nice deep, hazy gold color with a white, dense crown that settled over time to a thick cap and modest lace. No floaties.
S - Belgian ale for sure - modest grassy hops, malt and sugar. Also has a bit of a Saison-like funk going on.
T - Delicious ale; World Class. Splendid rendition that's like a cross between Orval and Duvel. Beautifully balanced hops and malt with a sophisticated "Band Aid" accent. Wow.
M - Very soft, creamy, and dense but still manages some slickness; lip-smacking.
D - At 7.5% ABV, this is probably as good as it gets for a Belgian. Almost too drinkable. (Notice that I said "almost.") :)
